It starts off kind of hokey; the old song "You Belong to Me" is playing, while you see a series of newspapers with headlines about somebody disappearing. This sequence seems like too short a short cut to introduce the mystery; some footage on the cruise ship would have been a far better opening. But the film soon picks up, and the significance of these things is explained.
Leslie Anne Down, as a radio talk show psychologist/self-styled detective is the main strength of the movie, as she inextricably gets tangled up in a series of murders that are apparently linked to the disappearance. The movie takes a standard murder mystery format here; as soon as a character is introduced, they are queued up in line to be the next victim. Down, along with her cop friend (Tony De Santis) try to sort out the mystery, and stop the carnage. There's no shortage of suspects, and it keeps you guessing.
A pretty good movie overall, but the clichéd stupidity of the killer in the closing sequence is almost laughable, and detracts from the story's effectiveness. Still, a good watch.
